This is a sponsored post in collaboration with Namaste Foods. So, how are you all? I had a fantastic April from the work point of view. It's Monday(when I wrote this post) and I am having some serious Monday morning blue. To cheer those who are in the same boat as me, I have a decadent vegan gluten-free chocolate brownie recipe. It’s really an indulgent dessert to enjoy in order beating the Monday morning blue. Believe it or not, I have eaten two large pieces of brownies since morning and still craving for more. I am that chocoholic type, you see!
I know, my diet and low-carb eating plan seems jeopardized or maybe not. Because, this is a healthy brownie recipe free of top allergens and it is so simple to make. I am glad to share with you all that I collaborated with Namaste Foods and received some of their awesome products. Their vegan, gluten-free, low-carb and ready-mix products are all organic, made with the finest ingredients to make it healthy and yummy at the same time. If you want to know more about their product range, here is a link.
Namaste Foods is a family-owned and operated company. The best part is it’s a facility run and operated by all women. Since 17 years and under the guidance of Daphne Taylor(the CEO, chief cook and bottle washer), they are making these wonderful products for consumers of all types while keeping each of their basic and special eating needs in mind. Their products are free of all top eight allergens notorious for causing various food allergies in humans. To keep the facility safe, they have always ensured to monitor the environment and keep it free from top eight food allergens.
When I received my products, I couldn’t be happier. Each product is beautifully packed and has a clear nutrition and allergen information so that consumers can decide whether it is suitable for them or not. I received an organic garbanzo bean flour packed in a re-sealable bag, a gluten-free chocolate brownie mix and a yummy pizza crust mix. The recipe shared in this article is made from their gluten-free chocolate brownie mix. I have created some incredible recipes from their other products too, and I will share those recipes with you all in my future posts.
Vegan Gluten-free Chocolate Brownie:
The Namaste Brownie mix is gluten-free and it’s huge. I have made a big batch of my vegan gluten-free chocolate brownie just from half of the mix. The recipe calls for adding egg. However, I have made some tweaks and changes and used my very own egg replacer. The result is AWESOME! The brownies are fudgy, decadent, and so so chocolaty to resist. To make it extra delicious, I have added some semi-sweetened vegan chocolates, walnuts for that crunch and some more chocolate drizzle before serving. Gooey, chocolaty, and so yum! Well, you need to make and try this to believe what I am saying.
Now the best part: a Namaste Giveaway! Yay, finally I am hosting a giveaway in collaboration with Namaste Foods.
